Baking in a Cast-Iron Skillet...Try this Almond Shortbreadby The Vanilla Guru on 11/20/12
My loving family is not flowery or generous with compliments so when our daughter Liza said that the Almond Skillet Shortbread was "awesome" and my husband (the real Vanilla Guru, by the way) agreed, I knew that I had a real winner to share with our friends and fans of our own almond-vanilla extract. A little Mannix history...years ago Mamaw (Mike's grandmother*) and my mother-in-law taught me how to fry anything in cast-iron skillet. To this day, I'm sure it's the only perfect way to fry chicken, fish, etc. because of the heat distribution. Over the years, I've experimented with baking in it (Mike's favorite way for cornbread) but after this delicious success story, will bake it in more often. I promise, Mamaw!
